The card show racket is a funny one. I noticed in yesterday’s NY Post, there’s a NYC area collector-skumfest where Joe Pepitone is signing free autographs, but obtaining the John Hancock of Batista or Melina at the same event costs $20.

In further sign o’ the times news, the Jets’ Leon Washington, he of the hotter-than-PS3 Bowman card (above), will be meeting and greeting at Massapequa, NY ice cream emporium Last Licks on December 5.
